We Create "Valuation Acceleration” for Private Equity Portfolio Companies

What if there were new strategies, tools, and techniques that would supercharge a portfolio company’s growth trajectory?

Private Equity Portfolio Companies Often Face Several Challenges In Accelerating Value, Specifically When it Comes To Sales.​

Limited resources are a common issue, affecting the portfolio company’s ability to invest in effective sales and marketing initiatives. This is often exacerbated by skill gaps within the sales team, either due to a lack of specialized talent or high turnover rates that make it difficult to maintain continuity in sales processes and client relationships.

Other challenges include navigating complex compliance landscapes and adapting to rapidly changing market conditions, which can require agile adjustments that are difficult to execute without strong leadership and sufficient resources. Consequently, these issues often lead to slower sales cycles, reduced profitability, and ultimately, difficulties in delivering the accelerated value expected by private equity investors.

Braintrust is a sought-after partner by Private Equity firms to accelerate sales, enhance leadership, improve organizational culture, and create more value.

Performance Driven Training Companies Of The Future Looks Like Us

Don't take our word for it

If you are looking for ELITE growth partners for your company, look no further than the team at Braintrust. I was fortunate enough to be introduced to them about 15 months ago and this team has made an incredible impact on our sales, marketing and operations teams.

Matt Aston, CEO GPRS

It became very apparent early on that Braintrust could really help us grow our business. Their attention to detail, structured programs, project management, commitment to the partnership and execution of deliverables has been second to none. As a result, we progressed from what was initially a marketing consulting agreement to a fullblown partnership including NeuroMessaging, NeuroSelling, and NeuroCoaching for the second half of the year.

Brandon Sorensen, VP Sales & Marketing, Dynapower

NeuroCoaching™ helped my team translate neuroscience principles into a practical model that will have a sustaining impact on team member development and performance. We were looking for a sustainable coaching model and we got it. As a team, we crystallized a foundational vision for our business unit, each leader, and our employees. The program will take us from a good company to a great leadership organization. Thanks to the Braintrust team

Tres Johnson, VP of Psychiatry Sales, Lundbeck

You Ask. We Answer.

We'll always shoot you straight.

What does your typical engagement look like?

All engagements begin with an exploration into the goals of your organization. Based upon that discovery, we will collaborate with you to co-create the right program to meet your needs and achieve your goals, whether sales (NeuroSelling®), coaching (NeuroCoaching™), or a customer support team (NeuroServing™). All programs have a strong core of application and activation, which includes skills training and 1:1 coaching.

Believe it or not, yes we do! With agreed-upon baseline metrics/KPIs as well as 12 months of reinforcement coaching as part of the engagement, if an associate or associates in the organization do not achieve the desired, agreed-upon measurable improvement, Braintrust will continue to provide 1:1 coaching for that associate, at our cost, until they achieve the desired performance and improvement or until the company decides that the individual cannot meet the standard.

Engagements vary significantly depending on the type of program and the number of associates included in a program. As a foundation, it is safe to expect a minimum investment of $100,000 and for our larger clients, we have delivered engagements of over $1M+. Bottom line, we can support engagements of multiple sizes in numerous industries.

We have built a unique combination of Academia (Ph.Ds), past Enterprise B2B Executives, and world-class certified coaches and facilitators that have delivered thousands of hours of Braintrust-certified content. Our executive team held senior-level positions in multiple industries in previous organizations prior to joining Braintrust. We have a combined 112+ years of B2B Leadership experience on our team.

As with the investment question, engagements vary depending on the type of program, However, our live training sessions are never longer than two days, our virtual sessions are typically two hours or less and our 1:1 coaching sessions are generally an hour.

Yes! In fact, we conducted a 12-month study with one of our clients to assess the return on investment from our NeuroSelling® program. 108 out of 135 sales representatives showed an increase in total revenue over baseline. Total revenue across the group increased by $615,816 per month and over a 12-month period, total revenue increased by $7,389,792 versus baseline.
